Weaver Small Grants – Request for Proposals Out Now

If you’re a graduate student working in the Great Plains, you might be interested in a small grant available through The Nature Conservancy’s Nebraska Chapter.  The J.E. Weaver small grants program provides five $2500 grants to graduate students working on projects in a number of categories related to conservation in the Great Plains.  The proposal is short (three pages) and easy to write.  Please pass this information on to anyone you know who might be interested.

Click here to see the full request for proposals.  If you’d like to be on the mailing list for the annual announcement about this grant program, send an email to Mardell Jasnowski at mjasnowski(at)tnc.org.

    Just curious Chris. Does the research need to be done in Nebraska, or can the research be done in neighboring states (e.g Loess Hills in Iowa)?

      Definitely not restricted to Nebraska. Anything relevant to Great Plains conservation is good.
